MOUNTAINSIDE BIBLE CHAPEL CHURCH COVENANT
Having been led, as we believe, by the Spirit of God to receive the Lord Jesus Christ as our Savior, and on the profession of our faith, having been baptized in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Ghost, we do now in the presence of God and angels and this assembly most solemnly and joyfully enter into covenant with one another, as one body in Christ.
We engage, therefore, by the aid of the Holy Spirit, to walk together in Christian love; to strive for the advancement of this church in knowledge, holiness, and comfort; to promote its prosperity and spirituality; to sustain its worship by faithful attendance; to abide by its ordinances, discipline, and its doctrines; to give it a sacred preeminence over all institutions of human origin; to contribute financially, cheerfully and regularly as God has prospered us, to the support of the ministry, the expense of the church, the relief of the poor, and the spread of the gospel throughout all nations.
We engage to maintain daily family and personal Bible reading and prayer, to instruct our children in Christian education, to seek the salvation of our kindred and acquaintances, and to order our deportment according to the light of God’s Word, and to abstain from practices that are harmful to our own Christian life or injurious to other members and dishonoring to the cause of Christ.
We engage to watch over one another in brotherly love, to remember each other daily in prayer, in speech to be slow to take offense, but always ready for reconciliation and mindful of the rules of our Savior to secure it without delay, and to aid each other in sickness.
